Hemophilus influenza type b is a bacterium responsible for severe pneumonia, meningitis and other invasive diseases that are transmitted through the respiratory tract from infected to susceptible individuals. The vaccine is now used in the routine immunization schedule. It is recommended for unvaccinated children and adults with high-risk conditions such as sickle cell disease, HIV/AIDS, damaged or no spleen, bone marrow transplant and cancer treatment with chemotherapy medication.
